Bringing the enjoyment of playing music into you life should be simple. With the Arius YDP-S34 digital piano, you can count on a high-quality instrument that doubles as a stylish piece of furniture.
The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX
The Yamaha flagship 9’ CFX concert grand piano offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass with a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.
This feature reproduces the slight change in sound at the instant you remove your fingers from the keys. What’s more, different key-off sounds are produced for staccato and legato playing.
When the hammer of a grand piano strikes its string, the other strings will also resonate. The YDP-S34 can reproduce this effect using its String Resonance feature.
Authentic acoustic piano playability and comfort
Yamaha’s Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard provides a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, and is similar to an acoustic piano. Meanwhile, newly designed speakers can deliver a very powerful sound from low to high notes. The YDP-S34 can also recreate the characteristic acoustics of the grand piano sound in a more realistic fashion by utilising the following Yamaha technology.
The Stereophonic Optimizer—a new kind of headphone experience
When using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the dispersed sound heard when sitting in front of an acoustic piano. With the Stereophonic Optimizer, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos appear to come from the body of the instrument. This provides a comfortable, natural experience that removes the drawbacks of performing with headphones.
The speakers attached to the case exhibit a phenomenon in which, if nothing is done, the volume of the sound will increase due to the resonant frequency of the material. However, installing Acoustic Optimizers with the same resonant frequency within the body of the piano suppresses this resonance. This improvement of the sound is something that has only been possible thanks to Yamaha‘s thorough knowledge of the internal acoustic characteristics of musical instruments.
Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) – for comfortable practice at home
At low volumes, bass and treble used to be difficult to hear; however, YDP-S34 is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced piano tones at any volume level.
While the YDP-S34 boasts a modern, stylish look, it also offers a traditional acoustic piano playing experience. Yamaha has over a century of acoustic pianomaking heritage and has tapped into this experience when designing digital pianos. From the moment you open the lid, sit down, and start playing, you’ll be immersed in the sound of the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand piano. The 88 Graded Hammer Standard keys replicate the touch of a grand piano, giving you an authentic acoustic piano experience.
